5 LIKELY INDIAN STORIES IN 2006

By Arun Kumar/Neha Mehta/Princy Jain/Mayank Tewar/Shreevatsa Nevatiai | PTI
PUBLISHED ON JAN 01, 2006 11:23 AM IST

But once it crosses 12K, it?ll be volatile and subject to sharp ?corrections?. The next trigger up? A possible decision on FDI in retail. The Reliance demerger could provide a short-term correction.
